Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality from corner to corner.
some review i read about this lens suggested that it was average quality - in my opinion, they got it wrong!
I cannot fault this lens on it's quality.
Bad points:
if you are use to the USM lenses, you will notice the focusing motor, but it is what it is and suits my purposes perfectly.
